Pretty hard game to call to be honest, and one that I think could go either way. The boys of Tricked surprised some people yesterday with the taking down of CPH, who did have a stand-in, and seem to be off since they returned from LAN. This happens to most teams, so it is not really that much of a surprise. Tricked for me do still feel like a mix team, even if they did play together before, and I feel like their map pool might not be the strongest as a result of this.
The ex-Epsilon boys are a side that I feel people always underestimate. They are not a bad team, they have some quality players, and have been together for such a long time, their synergy must be really strong by now. Their results have been quite up and down however, beating Epiphany in a game that honestly looked like they didn’t care was not that impressive, and losing poorly to Method is another mark against them.
Overall though, I think the Spaniards are a decent side, and this game in my eyes is 50-50, with perhaps a slight edge towards the Spanish side due to them being a team for longer, and therefore hopefully having a stronger map pool. With the odds currently being 52-48, I would suggest going LOW on ex-Epsilon on CSGL, and if you want to play it safer, them to win at least 1 map on Fanobet.
My odds for this match: Tricked 50:50 Epsilon
